This is a continuation from Christmas Voices that I began for d’Verse last week
Dec 6 and 7. The rector and his wife
In the beginning
Was the word and the word was
Pray for us sinners…..
We gave all we had
There was nothing left to give
God took it all
Dec 8th. The Teacher
Carol singing in the snow
Childrens faces glow
Dec 9th and 10th The homeless man and the girl from the store.
There was no room at the hostel
His predicament was momentarily magnified
by the similarities of their story on this cold winter night.
She offered him her last note
Crisp and clean in the crystal clear light of the moon
He received the yuletide offering with gladness for she had given with love.
